Adventure Trail

Manley Mere Adventure Trail meanders through woodland, alongside a stream with obstacles and challenges along the way. It’s a great way of having fun and spending quality time with friends and family.

All equipment is self-propelled and cleverly fits into the surroundings. Wherever possible obstacles are made from recycled material and re-used agricultural equipment see if you can guess what things were in a previous life!

Manley Mere Adventure Trail Fun!

“Outstanding. Myself, my daughter and two grandchildren all enjoy the adventure trail.”



“Absolutely fantastic! The experience on the adventure trail is perfect for thrill-seekers who like getting muddy. However, I would recommend bringing a spare change of clothes for afterwards.”



Brilliant time on the adventure trail with a 2 year old and 4 year old. Plenty they could both do! The equipment is a lot of fun, the scenery is beautiful and it’s really well maintained.
